Not the usual post-irreconcilable differences make up cash-in tour way, but in a song inexpicably becoming popular again.

First it happened with a cover of their track Mad World by Gary Jules.

Now another song is making the rounds. This time Everybody Wants to Rule The World.

It has Survived bans, and racked up thousands of streams. There’s cover versions by Weezer and Lorde and even The Economist is getting in on the act calling the song an enduring cold war anthem.
